December ‘On the Shelves Poll
DON’T FORGET TO ENTER OUR TWO GIVEAWAYS GOING ON THIS WEEK!
Questions of the week: What is your biggest pet peeve when it comes to books? Maybe you don’t like love triangles or thin plots? Tell us about it!
Answer: Oooooo! Such a good question! Hmmm…well, if a story has far too much detail going on that doesn’t really lead anywhere, I tend to get bored. If a story goes on and on and on and on and on and on and on about the sights and sounds for a little too long, you’ve lost me.
Badly written characters just kill me. The classic ‘To Stupid To Live’ heroine is one possibility of how a character can go horribly wrong, especially in a historical romance. Can she do stupid things??? Of course, yet some things are not only beyond stupid, they are unforgivable.
Rape! Can’t stand it when characters are raped. I’ve quit reading books that have dealt with this before. Especially if it’s the heroine as was the norm in most 80’s historical romances (i.e. Whitney, My Love). I just don’t find it romantic in any circumstance, whether it’s realistic for the time period or not.
Abrupt endings. Some books have me – hook, line and sinker – only to let me go when the couple just reaches their happily ever after. I know all is well, but give me just a little bit more to visualize before I leave, please? 😀
THANKS FOR STOPPING BY!!!
